In order to help regions to apply more coherent integration policies, REGIN builds upon existing sets of integration indicators:

  • The EU ‘Zaragoza’ Integration Indicators which use Eurostat data to monitor the situation of migrants in order to enhance comparability between EU Member States. There are three key policy purposes for using integration indicators: understanding integration contexts and integration outcomes, evaluating the results of policies, and mainstreaming integration into general policies.

  • Similarly, the Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX), previously produced by two of the project’s partners CIDOB and MPG, has become a useful tool that measures migrant integration in different policy areas in all EU Member States and beyond.

As integration policies have also been developed at regional level, this project aims to adapt national MIPEX to regional data as MIPEX-Regions (MIPEX-R). Establishing whether the share of the regional mandate is significant enough to warrant an European comparison, the project aims to explore to what extent national policies require regional action for their implementation and which are the crucial regional policies devoted to migrant integration.

This innovative set of regional indicators based on standardised questionnaires is tested in the six partner-regions of the project: Azores (PT), Campania (IT), Catalonia (ES), Murcia (ES), Puglia (IT) and Skåne (SE). The preliminary results are gathered in a two-fold dataset: the regional migrant integration policies dataset “MIPEX-R” and the “regional outcome dataset”, together with a methodological note.

These policy and outcomes indicators should help regional authorities to underpin evidence-based policy-making on migrant integration and inclusion.
